we saw tropic thunder tonight. hilarious! I'm a huge apocalypse now

I expected. can't wait to see zombie strippers next...

fall is coming

here's a shot of our back garden this evening. it's getting so cold! I
love fall. one nice thing about where we live is the number of trees--
so we'll get to see all the autumn colors this year!

if I'm called mum in a tea shop, what does that mean? do I look a
certain age?

new pub

the pub I'm currently drinking in with my friend Sigga. called
barrowboy and banker, and I wonder, how many bankers in this bar will
soon return to their old barrowboy job, what with the financial turmoil.

optical illusion

it's not a thong!

it definitely feels like autumn

pumpkins at borough market really make me miss the states today!

commuting is...

I like this guy. I've sat in the same train carriage before but never
had the opportunity to snap a photo so discreetly! Yay iPhone! his
book? the history of china, if you were wondering.

because it won't stop raining...

... richard and I have been lazing about in the flat, cooking, baking,
movie watching, iPhone playing. I must say, these are the best looking
cookies I've ever baked. we're about to sample...

it sure is resilient

i got an iphone last week. richard and i both did. within 12 hours, i managed to drop mine. underneath a train. as my hear sank and i both laughed and cried, we frantically found some maintenance workers who announced we'd have to wait for the train to leave before they'd be able to retrieve it. it was a nerve-wracking 15 minute wait. i kept imagining my iphone would look like those flattened pennies--you know, when you're 8 it's cool to put a penny on the train tracks and retrieve the flattened copper after the rain runs it over? after the train left, the maintenance man had to turn the electric current off so he could grab the phone. to my complete amazement, you couldn't even tell the phone had been dropped, bounced off the platform before falling on the tracks next to the rail and had a 12-car train rumble by and inch or two away. not only was it still on, it was still paused on the npr podcast i was listening to before the fall! richard was all-too happy to take pictures:

i guess i have no excuse now not to blog, since i'm basically carrying a mini-version of mac book along with everywhere i go now! i actually don't quite know how i lived pre-iphone anymore. it's ridiculously addictive.
